Engine Start. With a battery start, power is available to operate the
APU and engine fire warning systems, the intercom system between
the pilot and the ground, the cockpit utility light and EMI/IFEI.
For external air start, ensure that bleed air knob is OFF to avoid ATS
damage.

When the engine crank switch is on, the air turbine starter control
valve (ATSCV) opens and the air turbine starter (ATS) rotates the
engine thru the AMAD. Engine rotation is apparent almost
immediately and can be seen on the tachometer. During operation
below flight idle, the nozzles may go closed or oscillate. After the
engine lights-off and accelerates to approximately 60% rpm, the
engine crank switch returns to OFF. After both generators are on the
line, the APU runs for 1 minute, and then shuts down.

To prevent engine damage during start, if an engine was not idled
for 5 minutes prior to shutdown and a restart must be made

between 15 minutes and 4 hours after shutdown, the engine must
be motored for 1 minute at 24% N2.

When using brakes, apply firm, steady brake pedal pressures. Use
nosewheel steering whenever possible, minimizing differential
braking. Avoid dragging brakes or light brake applications
except as necessary for drying wet brakes. Wet brakes can have as
much as 50% reduced braking capacity. Hard momentary braking
with wet brakes during taxi can reduce drying time.
Taxi. As aircraft starts to roll, apply brakes to check operation. When
clear, check nosewheel steering in both directions in the high mode
to ensure proper operation. At high gross weight, make all turns at
minimum practicable speed and maximum practicable radius.

1.7 TAKE OFF
• Normal Takeoff
Ensure the speedbrake is retracted. The aircraft should be aligned
with the centerline of the runway for individual takeoffs. When in
position, roll forward slightly to center the nose wheel. As the
takeoff roll is begun, advance throttles to MIL power. If an
afterburner takeoff is desired, afterburner is selected by moving
both throttles into the afterburner range and advancing smoothly to
MAX power. If one afterburner fails to light or blows out during
takeoff, the resulting power loss is significant. Sufficient directional
control is available with the rudder and nosewheel steering to
continue the takeoff with asymmetric power. The decision to abort
or continue the takeoff depends on existing circumstances: external
stores configuration, runway remaining, and the characteristics of
the afterburner failure since it may indicate problems with the basic
engine. Nosewheel steering is used to maintain directional control
throughout the takeoff roll. Differential braking alone may not be
adequate to maintain directional control on takeoff. Also, the drag of
the brakes increases the length of the takeoff roll.
The location of the main landing gear well aft of the CG does not
allow the aircraft to be rotated early in the takeoff roll.
The normal rotation technique is to position the stick aft of neutral
approaching nosewheel lift-off speed. Nosewheel lift-off speed
depends on weight and CG, however, hold the aft stick until 6° to 8°
nose high attitude (waterline symbol) is reached. Main gear lift-off
follows shortly, and a forward adjustment of stick is necessary to
maintain the desired attitude.
For a minimum run takeoff, use full afterburner power. Approaching
nosewheel lift-off speed, apply full aft stick until the aircraft begins
to rotate. Adjust the stick to maintain a 10° to 12° nose high
attitude (waterline symbol). Once a positive climb rate is

Falcon BMS F/A-18C REV4

established, ensure the gear handle light is out and retract the gear.
Accelerate to the appropriate climb speed.
• Crosswind Takeoff.
The initial portion of the crosswind takeoff technique is the same as
the normal takeoff. Aft stick pressure should not be applied until
approaching liftoff speed.
Do not assume an immediate wing low attitude in order to
counteract for wind drift; the pilot cannot properly judge the wing
tip ground clearance on a swept wing aircraft.

Optimum cruise and maximum endurance should be found in the
Performance Data, and is attained by flying the correct Mach
number for configuration and altitude. Maximum range cruise is
approximated by establishing 4.2°, but no faster than Mach 0.85.
Maximum endurance is approximated by establishing 5.6° AOA.
